To mine scrypt coins, you will need specialized hardware called ASICs. If you have a gaming PC with a good GPU, you can mine x11 coins like darkcoin. If you have a laptop, it's not really worth it to mine.


Really only asic mining is profitable.  GPU and CPU normally are not profitable.  Yes there is X11 and others, but add up electricity of GPU's running most likely you run at a loss.  And you will not pay off the GPU.

I do not suggest CPU/GPU mining.

Yeah that's right. At the past CPU/GPU mining can be profitable but now if you want to profit with CPU/GPU, you have to get your electricity for free.
Don't think mining or you want to think only by using asics miners.

Do the math but even with free I dont see you ROI. That is paying for the CPU or GPU and make money over what they cost.

Yes you would make a little bit of money but it would be less then you paid for CPU or GPU in majority of cases.  Only way is if you speculated right and mined right coin and held it.  So slim chance but could happen with free electricity.

This is not good in our country because high electricity rate. maybe its profitable for some people here if there current is jumpered. so electricity is free...
some people from our country buy antminer asic but he sell it again because of high electricity consumption....

Even in my country where the electricity is pretty cheap, $0.03 for kWh(kilowatt-hour), people barely return what they invest with Antminers.

well this is strange with that electricity anu antminers s5 for example would have roid long time ago and pretty fst too, if you bought it used

an used one was around 1.5 btc even less some time, we have $2 vs $0.42, 1.5 daily of profit, in 8 months you have your roi

Sure, you can still do it .. I mine some Monero/XMR now and again using a few AMD cards I have extra in my rig. Wink

Edit... Bitcoins? No way. LOL. Smiley

maybe it can be possible to mine sidechain in the future, therefore gpu can reclaim its small territory again

or in the case bitcoin will fail and we start again with something else, not desirable at all...

 i think i Start mining with older Hardware only to try it then i calculate the price if its rentabel to mine BTC

Try any miner calculator before you start mining on hardware. You can calculate if its profitable or not... me from our country GPU/CPU is not profitable and youll lose youre money
i was try calculated the antminer s7 my calculate is $60-$70 usd a month. but i dont think so if this is the profit if i buy and use antminer s7 right now and monitor it by me..

Mining is a Good way for earning bitcoins. Here are the steps you should follow..
(1) First of all, Set up a wallet-- Bitcoin is an internet currency, so you must set up a wallet for transactions, and make sure to have backup, because lost wallet is like burnt cash.....
(2) Decide your category for mining-- GPUs, FPGAs, ASICs
Each category is different than the other, so first decide which one you want to choose in these main categories.
(3) Get sure about your hardware-- Make sure your hardware is sufficient and capable for mining, you don't want to be in loss.
(4) Join a pool-- Working in groups is always better. They increase your experience

Asics are truly the only way to go anymore.   Gpus are hard to even get enough to pay electricity in most cases, ROI is not happening.   And I have not heard of FPGA mining for a long time.

Go Asics when picking a miner.

When was this made? I don't think suggesting a GPU for mining is a good idea.

It clearly says January 2014, and the estimated btc price was 930$. Maybe read the whole OP before asking blindly next time?

I started with GPU mining, then bought some cheap 2nd hand ascis. From there I upgraded my farm with better hardware.

This method is perfect, not only do you learn about the different mining software, but also the different mining pool. Setting it up etc.

While learning the mining process, go to the exchanges and learn a bit about trading too.. Give it a few months and you wil be a pro Wink

yeah there are cloud service like hashnest or bit-x, but check their maintanance, because with the added fee from it, the roi double basically, which is lame imho...
